We're being seriously outraised, of last week, Mitt Romney and the Republicans had $X million more to spend than our side.

That puts us at an alarming disadvantage in a close race with just 9 days to go. Please help close the gap today:

[url]

We have more than 4 million people who own a piece of this campaign, and the other side wants to straight-up buy this election from under our feet with a few big checks, and flood the airwaves with negative ads that distort the President's record and attack his character outright.

I know it can be aggravating. Believe me. But we have to stay focused.

Look, we knew this onslaught of spending was coming, and that's why we're here day after day asking you to help drive us forward. Now it's a reality.

We need to fight this now, -- or we risk losing everything we've built and invested in:

After all Barack has done in office, and after all you have done to build this campaign, we can't afford to watch everything slip away on Election Night.

But the other side has outraised us our opponents have $X million more than we do for the final stretch. And none of us has ever seen what a barrage of money like that will do.

That's why we need to do everything we can in these last days, and why we still need your support.

And, until tomorrow night, any donation you make will automatically enter you to meet Barack on Election Night and have a front-row seat for his speech.

Please make a donation of $X or whatever you can today.

We can either give it our all in these final days, or wake up on November 7th wishing we had done a little more.

Don't wait. Supporting this campaign once more will move us closer to victory and enter you to win a trip to Chicago to join Barack on Election Night:

Thank you for all you're doing to help Barack win this -- he can't do it without you.

In battleground states across the country, supporters like you are fired up: They're making calls, they're knocking on doors, they're talking about what's at stake in this election, and they're getting voters to the polls.

Folks are working their hearts out, and if we're going to celebrate together on Election Night, we've all got to step up a bit more in the last week of this campaign.

Chip in $X or whatever you can before tomorrow night -- and you'll be automatically entered to meet Barack in Chicago and be in the front row at our Election Night event, airfare and hotel included for you and a guest:

[url]

I know you can feel the energy out there, many places, Americans are already voting -- and because of the work you're doing, they're turning out in record numbers.

But we can't let up.

Chip in $X or more before tomorrow night to keep this going all the way through Election Day. Then we'll celebrate the way that we know best -- with you:

Right now, I'm looking at a spreadsheet with requests from organizers across the country.

North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida are asking for vans to make sure that elderly supporters can get to the polls.

Nevada, Ohio, and Wisconsin want to make sure we're able to get on the air to counter the latest lies from the other side.

And Iowa, Colorado, and New Hampshire need more clipboards and campaign lit to reach all the necessary voters during these last days of GOTV.

I want to be able to say yes to every request -- they're all urgent. But I won't be able to unless people like you chip in $X or more right now.

Oh, and to make things even better -- this is one of your last opportunities to win a trip to join President Obama for Election Night in Chicago.

Donate $X or whatever you can to be automatically entered:
